I was reminded today that Mid-Autumn Festival was coming by the big stacks of mooncakes on sale at Super 88 Market. In fact, they were discounted, which made me wonder if I'd missed it already. So I thought I'd check the date, which Wikipedia says is October 3 this year.

One of the other things the page has is a list of cultural or regional customs. This includes one I've never even heard of:

"Putting pomelo rinds on one's head"

Has anyone else ever heard of this? Is there any significance, other than "It's goofy"?
